After some current development in gcc boost::regex stopped compiling
for me. I have tried to find out if the error is in boost::regex or in
the gcc c++ standard library.
After what I read from 126.96.36.199 it seems that boost::regex is in error
and that some assuption on operations on types is done, and that the
libstdc++ breaks those assumptions.
Especially the conversion of pos_type to streamsize. as far as I
can read, cannot be assumed.
Anyhow this patch is for boost 1.30.2 and I think it should be
correct, please have a look at it and apply it if you find it correct.
